I really like the first panel, art-wise. I think the comic looks a lot better with detailed backgrounds, but they usually triple the drawing time for me. :-P<P>JOSH.

ACH... and before anyone says it, that is *not* Roman in the fourth panel. That's some random female extra who's never been in the strip before, and probably won't be again. :-)<P>Feh, time for a new artistic style, this one's run out of unique characters...<P>JOSH.

I meant <I>last</I> friday (oct 26), not tomorrow. If it was tomorrow, all we'd have to do would be to wait. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/tongue.gif"><P>And don't you mean "haunted"?

Yeah, Josh, I'd keep up with the backgrounds. The nice bricks in perspective worked well. Yeah, backgrounds take a little (okay, a lot) more time, but they can really strengthen a strip. <P>(Of course, it helps to use pens of different width. I myself was afraid of drawing backgrounds regularly for the reason that the characters might get lost in them. But now that I have this nifty really-thin pen I carry around with the rest of my art stuff, I can have the detail and backgrounds stand apart from the characters due to the contrast in the line width.)<P>But, yeah. I took note of the cool background in the first panel when I first saw the strip. <P>--David
